Share Your Favorite Children's Books!

We have a bookshelf that is about to explode with books!

We have........

Sweet books.

Funny books.

Pop-up books.

Boy books.

Stupid {as in, why was this ever published} books.

And awesome books!

We try to read a lot!  Not only to help WJ's English get better, but for overall learning, development,  & cuddle time.

My son's favorite book is his pop-up book from Mrs. Tammy of Dr. Seuss' Oh, the Places You'll Go.  He is beginning to memorize it & quotes it while walking around the house.  It's really cute!  His favorite 2 words in the whole book are "boom bands."  He makes it into a song, "Boom bands, boom bands!"  He's such a muscial little guy!

I have two current favorite books.

One is Because You Are My Baby  by S. North.  It's a Mommy telling her baby that whether she is a sailor, a rock star, a geologist, or a mountaineer she'll do anything for him.  It's so sweet & imaginative!  I love it!

God Found Us You by Bergren & Bryant is a book about the journey of an adoptive momma fox to her little baby.  For adoptive first-time Mommas whose journeys were filled with prayer & hope & waiting, this is the perfect book.  It so beautifully conveys our journey to WJ.  I love reading it to him!

So, what are your favorite children's books?

I'd love to hear!

We love discovering new books!

Have a great weekend!
